Discover King John’s Palace – On the Trail of Magna Carta
King John’s Palace lies at the heart of the former Royal Hunting Forest of Sherwood, but few people fully appreciate its global significance.
The Magna Carta 800 funding will enable us to create a 5 km interpreted Magna Carta trail that connects King John’s Palace to the Parliament Oak (one of the oldest trees in Sherwood) utilising existing Rights of Way. We will create 5 bespoke resource chests for schools (filled with fact sheets, work sheets, books and activities), that they can hire free of charge during and after the project. We see both of these elements as providing a great legacy for Magna Carta within Britain’s greatest Forest, which will last long into the future.
